I can only view my own tweets and no one else's? So frustrated, need help


#1

Hey all, I’m using the API for the first time and I’m running into something really weird. Whenever I authenticate via OAuth I can only view my own tweets and no one else’s. Even when I add parameters into the 1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json endpoint it’s still only showing my tweets and no one else. This is really frustrating and I might be doing something really dumb but I was hoping someone could help me out.

Also, when I try to use another endpoint I’m getting a 34 error/page not found, which is confusing, too. Yeah, I need some help. :slight_smile:

Here’s what my code looks like at this point – like I said, I’m just starting to figure this out so please bear with me. I’m using https://github.com/themattharris/tmhOAuth to authenticate.

<?php

require 'tmhOAuth.php';
require 'tmhUtilities.php';
$tmhOAuth = new tmhOAuth(array(
  'consumer_key'    => 'xxxxxxxxxx',
  'consumer_secret' => 'xxxxxxxxxx',
  'user_token'      => 'xxxxxxxxxx',
  'user_secret'     => 'xxxxxxxxxx,
));

$tmhOAuth->request('GET', $tmhOAuth->url('1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json'));
$timeline = json_decode($tmhOAuth->response['response'], true);
foreach ($timeline as $array_id)
	{
    	echo "$array_id[text]";
		?><br><br><?
	}

?>

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!
